The IS Business Analyst, Budgeting and Procurement is responsible for our workflow and processes for IS budgeting, fiscal responsibility, vendor contracts, software and services for our IS team. As a member of our Application Portfolio Management team, the Business Analyst (BA) joins a team of skilled business professionals focused on business process optimization, application rationalization, and vendor management. The BA is a key team member to evaluate, analyze, and process our requisitions, contracts, and software and services portfolio.

The Business Analyst is responsible for the day to day processing of application and service requisitions focused on high value software and services contracts. The complexity of the job includes vendor relations, contract management and collaborating with our corporate finance department on budgeting and planning. The interesting, yet most challenging part of the job, is to reengineer our IS processes to continuously improve our service levels and cost model.

The candidate we will hire will have a background in finance, and/or accounting. The candidate will also have an understanding of technology and vendors in the IS space. Most importantly, the candidate will have a desire and aptitude to optimize everything they touch.

The candidate we seek will be able to answer the following questions:

  1. Should we capitalize labor spent in project discovery, and which project workbook are we capitalizing against? Candidate will recognize the complexity in answering this question, understand where to go for guidance, and quote the applicable company policy with insightful interpretation.
  2. What is the impact three years from now our Supplies and Services budget if CPI increases 4% instead of 3% for the next 2 years? Candidate will be familiar with modeling, have a toolset and methodology to answer this question, and the follow-up question of “what if it is 3.8%?” in 5 minutes and not 5 hours.
  3. Who is the right person to approve a %242.5M requisition for laboratory software?
  4. Which is the better deal: AT&T 5 year contract @ 25% discount or a 3 year contract with Comcast @ 35%? Working with our contracts team, what is the impact if we negotiate AT&T to 40% discount? Show your work.

This position will be at our newly designed, centrally San Diego located business services office, which offers an on-site café and gym. This is a full time, salaried position and offers Scripps Health’s award winning benefit package.
